  • Legacy tracking methods can sometimes result in false positives

    Over the past decade, there have been several major pipeline failures that have had significant environmental impact. The high consequence of a rupture failure makes these pipelines some of the most regulated assets in the world. To reduce risk on these pipelines, operators use inline inspection (ILI) pigs for multiple functions, such as cleaning or assessing the condition of a pipeline, or to ...

  • GPS–based slope monitoring systems and their applications in transition mining from open–pit to underground

    Combining methods of open–pit and underground mining can yield maximum economic outcomes, while they may also cause large–scaled geological hazards, such as landslides. Failure to prevent landslides in mining areas could result in losses and damages to equipment, surrounding environments, and even human lives. In this paper, we report the application of global positioning system (GPS) for ...

  • IndustrySafe safety software and airport SMS case study

    The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is proposing additional regulation that would require certified airports to develop and implement Safety Management Systems (SMS) for their entire airfield environment (including movement and non-movement areas) to improve safety at airports hosting air carrier operations. An SMS is a formalized approach to managing safety by developing an ...

  • Structural Monitoring Inside a Copper Mine

    CAS DataLoggers recently supplied the intelligent datalogging solution for the operators of a copper mine. For the safety of both miners and machinery, it was essential that any potentially dangerous situations were identified early by closely monitoring the mine’s entire structure to detect ground movement or subsidence around the mine which could make the structure become unstable. A ...

  • The latest ground Gas monitoring innovations

    The latest Ground Gas monitoring innovations   The traditional methodology for ground gas monitoring has been ‘spot monitoring’ – taking event readings at various set times to predict the sub surface gas regime on both on Brownfield and Landfill sites.     This methodology is in general current practice under both the EU Landfill Directive ...

  • Social resistance to biotechnology: attempts to create a Genetically Modified-free territory in Brazil

    This paper looks at the attempt to create a territory free of transgenic crops in the state of Rio Grande do Sul (RS) Although the state government had legal grounds under federal law and court decisions that banned these crops in Brazil, resistance by groups representing local farmers managed to disseminate the planting of transgenic soybeans in the state. The reasons for the government's ...

  • Stevens Systems Enhances Ground Water Remediation Effectiveness

    The Stevens Hydra Probe is now being used to monitor the progress of a new groundwater pollution clean up method called phytoremediation. Phytoremediation is the method by which trees are used to pull contamination out of groundwater. Remediation of contaminated aquifers can take many years to complete. The need for clean, healthy rivers, lakes and streams has stimulated research to develop ...

  • Tunneling Under Austin, Protecting the Environment, and Preserving the Peace

    ABSTRACTFor over a decade, an existing 42-inch wastewater interceptor has plagued the Austin Water Utility (Utility) with higher than usual maintenance demands. Located in the Walnut Creek flow line, this interceptor is partially exposed with manholes rising several feet above the creek bed due to years of erosion. The interceptor suffers from external erosion and is victim to debris floating ...

  • Pollution of south of Tehran ground waters with heavy metals

    Abstract: The reuse of nutrients and organic matter in wastewater sludge via on agricultural lands application is a desirable goal. However, trace or heavy metals present in sludge pose the risk of human or phytotoxicity from land application. The aim of this research is possibility of ground water pollution of south of Tehran because of ten years irrigation with Ni, Cd and Pb borne waste water. ...

  • What happened on "The Beach"? Social movements and governance of tourism in Thailand

    Debates about ecotourism are futile without an understanding of how concepts of ecologically acceptable and unacceptable forms of tourism are developed. This paper assesses the case of public opposition to the filming of the Hollywood film, The Beach, in Thailand on grounds that it caused environmental degradation. Evidence suggests that campaigners overstated the film's environmental impact in ...

  • Properties and Behavior of Nonhalogenated VOC`s

    An important consideration when evaluating a remedy is whether the compound is nonhalogenated or halogenated. A nonhalogenated compound is one which does not have a halogen (e.g., fluorine, chlorine, bromine, or iodine) attached to it. The vendor of the technology being evaluated must be informed whether the compounds to be treated are nonhalogenated or halogenated. In most instances, the vendor ...
